Ride-by shooting lands man in K.H.M.H.

Story Picture
A “ride-by” shooting on Sunday has sent a Belize City man to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Police reports are that twenty-six year old Fermin Mendez, a resident of Fuller’s Alley, was enjoying the company of friends on his veranda just after 1:00 on Sunday afternoon. It is then alleged that a dark complexioned young man rode through the alley on a bicycle armed with a nine millimetre gun and fired several shots in the direction of Mendez’s home. Mendez was hit in the upper right thigh and remains in a stable condition at the K.H.M.H. Police found three spent nine millimetre shells and one live round from the scene. At news time tonight, no arrests have been made.
